About the Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee

The Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee is responsible for coordinating advising and writing a committee letter of recommendation for students interested in seeking an advanced degree at a Health Professional School (medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, etc).

The committee will be composed of seven members, three of whom will be permanent based upon their regular duties. The members are as follows:

  • Director of the Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee (appointed for a five-year term by the Provost and VCAA in consultation with the Deans). This person must be a member of the faculty.
  • The campus physician or another health professional who is deeply interested in UNC Asheville (appointed annually by the Provost and VCAA).
  • Coordinator of the Pre-Health Professions.
  • Four faculty serving staggered four-year terms (appointed by FWDC in consultation with the Provost and VCAA).

Please send recommendations to the Director of the Pre-Health Advisory Committee who reports to the Provost and VCAA.
